Paradigm k

Capture the right design for your reservoir and realize its full production potential.

Leadership in today’s oil and gas environment requires skilled management of ever-increasing volumes of data.  The data is analyzed by expert asset teams who alert the business to production challenges and offer solutions using state-of-the-art methods.  However, design workflows are still hampered by a lack of efficient modeling tools that capture details of the recovery and production process and work in tandem with G&G modeling tools.  Advanced predictive workflows for design and maintenance that honor reservoir physics have been considered too complex, time-consuming and impractical . . . until now.  

Paradigm k integrates oilfield data with Production and Reservoir Engineering fundamentals to enrich production datasets and forecast future performance, from the reservoir to the well to the surface.  A Cloud-based, collaborative workflow, Paradigm k helps optimize the design and management of well systems.

Hydraulic fracture models in Paradigm k can be oriented and heterogeneous, and include complex structures.
In this solution, Paradigm has applied advanced computational mathematics to deliver a reservoir flow simulator with unparalleled speed. The proprietary simulation engine has breakthrough architecture that solves the well and reservoir models simultaneously, rather than by iteration.  Model setup is easy, even for cases with complex fractures, and gridding is only required to describe subsurface heterogeneity. Now you can examine more design cases than ever before, present the best solution, and forecast production with confidence.

When you start production Paradigm k stays with you. It now collects field data and automatically updates the model to enrich your production dataset and forecast performance in real time. Furthermore, it helps you identify optimal strategies to keep your production on track. But before you act, click ‘Connect’ to collaborate across departments and disciplines to get a comprehensive view of well status and history. You now have an advanced situational awareness to deliver your production targets with confidence.  

The initial release is Purpose-built for Unconventionals

The initial release of Paradigm k has been specifically designed and optimized for shale oil and gas reservoirs. Complex fluid movements around multi-fractured horizontal wells are rigorously simulated: The models are simple to set up and are executed with tremendous speed. Hydraulic fracture models can be oriented and heterogeneous, and include complex structures.  Future releases will be optimized for multi-well conventional reservoirs.  

Paradigm k is an integral part of this Paradigm solution:
